Galaxy S10e release date, UK price and specs – a full guide to the iPhone XR rival

APPLE'S iPhone XR has a brand new budget rival from Samsung – the Galaxy S10e.

Here's a complete guide to the Samsung Galaxy S10e, including the specs, features, and UK price.

Samsung Galaxy S10e release date – when is it out?

The Galaxy S10e was unveiled at the Samsung Unpacked event on February 20.

And you can pre-order the new Galaxy S10e from February 2019.

However, the Galaxy S10e release date doesn't fall until March 8 – which is when pre-orders begin shipping.

That's the same date as S10e's sibling phones: the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+.

Samsung Galaxy S10e specs and features revealed

The Samsung Galaxy S10e is a cheaper, lower-spec version of the new Galaxy S10.

Probably the biggest loss is the lack of triple-lens camera, which may disappoint photography nerds.

You also have to settle for a Full HD+ display, instead of the higher-resolution Quad HD+ panel on the Galaxy S10 proper.

The base model of the Galaxy S10e only has 6GB RAM too, rather than the 8GB featured on the Galaxy S10.

And you miss out on the cool ultrasonic fingerprint scanner touted by the Galaxy S10 too.

However, the phone retains most of hardware heft of its siblings, and is still a formidable blower by any measure.

Here are the key Galaxy S10e specs:

  • Galaxy S10e dimensions – 142.2 x 69.9 x 7.9mm / 150 grams
  • Galaxy S10e display – 5.8-inch (19:9) Full HD+ Dynamic AMOLED
  • Galaxy S10e processor – Octa-core 8nm processor
  • Galaxy S10e rear camera – Dual Pixel 12MP OIS (wide/f1.5/f2.4) AF
  • Galaxy S10e selfie camera – Dual Pixel 10MP AF (f/1.9)
  • Galaxy S10e memory – 6GB RAM + 128GB storage / 8GB RAM + 256GB storage
  • Galaxy S10e battery and charging – 3,100mAh battery / wireless reverse charging / Fast Wireless Charging 2.0
  • Galaxy S10e sensors and security – Captive Fingerprint Scanner / Accelerometer / Barometer / Gyro Sensor / Compass / Proximity Sensor

Samsung Galaxy S10e price – how much will it cost?

Pricing starts at £669 for the Galaxy S10e.

That puts it well below Apple's £749 iPhone XR.

Pre-orders begin 20th February 2019.
